Hand Misalignment

by Jaan
(Baltimore, MD)


I've been wearing my Grandfather's old Omega Seamaster daily for several years now. Today, I noticed that the hour and minute hands do not align at the correct place anymore. For example, when the hour hand is pointing directly at the 12:00 position, the minute hand is pointing to 41 minutes. I imagine this is something I will have to get repaired?

Also, I've been researching for months now to try to figure out exactly what year and model of Seamaster this watch is. The font that says 'Seamaster' is different from any other that I can find. Do you have any insight?

Many thanks,

Beautiful watch

Very nice watch! The problem you describe is not major and is easily repaired. However, the mechanism needs to be taken out to do this and I would leave this to a professional. If your watch has not been serviced in a while, this would be the perfect opportunity to get this done.

Regarding the dial - there were many different styles and also some dials were refinished. In order to say for certain I would need a high resolution close up image of the dial.

In order to determine the age of the watch, you need to know the serial number that can be found on the movement and the reference number that is inside the case back. When you have it serviced, make sure to ask the technician for this information. Just looking at the style of the watch I would estimate it is from the 1950's
